During his introduction this morning of Prof. Elizabeth ten Grotenhuis before her lecture to the students of CC102 on the arts of Asia, Prof. Eckel made reference to The Long Search, a famous 1977 BBC series on the religious philosophies of the world. Specifically, he mentioned the scene in Volume 9 (“Japan: The Land of the Disappearing Buddha”) in which correspondent Ronald Eyre observes a traditional tea ceremony with two Zen masters — watch this scene on YouTube.
